Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I just finished downoading lastnight a 64mb mini-installation of SUSE 9.2 ISO and already have burned it using ISO Recorder, and have it sitting on my CD on E: which has a boot folder, media 1 folder, SUSE folder, and content.
In the boot folder there are read me's, loader, boot disk1, boot disk2, boot disk3, liesmich, liesmich dos, modules, rescue disk, rescue floppy, linuxiso cfg, message test (and there is a whole lot more): directory yast, media, products (all contained in the media folder): nothing in the SUSE folder yet: and one file called context. So the only thing needed is what to do next with what I have.
This distro is supposed to work off the "CD" only, so I am assuming I don't have to change any of my files that is convert from NTFS over to Fat32? I presently have this same info running on several other Linux Forums waiting for help, and so I thought to myself that I should let you good people here know what I am needing in the hope's of someone perhaps mediating me through this Linux distro.
This distro is supposed to work off the "CD" only,...
Just to make this clear: the mini-installation ISO is not a LiveCD that runs from CD like KNOPPIX. This is not even a full distro. The only thing this CD does, is to boot a kernel and allow you to install the distro from remote sources.
